    Most shops should be able to install them. Ask in the regional section and they should be able to give you some suggested shops in your area.
    You don't HAVE to get the speedometer corrected. Unless it's really bad, I wouldn't bother. Just keep the differences in mind while driving.

    ...too much shit to list.
    Where in CA are you at?

    The speedo is FUCK ANNOYING. I have 33's and 4.56s and my speedo reads like 6% too fast. At 4.88's you'd be around 9% fast (if you had 33s...you have 35's so you might be close).

    If you are within 6% you can swap out the transfer case gear. It's a $30 part.

    Anything more than that and you'll have to get a signal modifier like the Dakota Digital.

    Will 488s make my truck as fast as stock? Because right now it is slower than all hell.
